    Unless you have money to go on the train to downtown Boston, go on the highland to wherever they take you that day or have friends who have cars, nothing.... You're out in the middle of no where.

    Gordon encourages everyone to attend a church in a surrounding community. There are no worship services on campus on Sundays. There are many music groups (both instrumental and vocal), good sports teams (no football team though), Christian faith groups, and other types of clubs on campus to join. They hold Ye Olde Scottie Faire every fall where students can see all the clubs and sign up for them. It is also pretty easy to start a club of your own if you wish. The campus shuttle runs on a limited schedule, with limited seating, every day of the week. Depending on the day, the shuttle makes stops at several nearby shopping malls, the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (affiliated with Gordon), and a grocery store plaza at a stop on the MBTA commuter rail. Many students take the train into Boston for church, internships, or just a day trip, and it is a great city to visit. Because Gordon is a Christian college, no alcohol/smoking/etc. is allowed on campus, even for people of age. This is pretty heavily enforced and if you are caught with any substances you are likely to get expelled. Smoking is not allowed on campus, so if you wish to smoke you are required to walk at least a quarter of a mile down the road from campus. Many students go off campus to nearby Endicott College or Salem State University for parties, as there are no parties on campus.

    They bring musical shows to the school, and there are many concerts on campus from the music department. the theater majors also put on great musicals and plays. The coffee houses are one of the more regularly attended on campus things.

    There is a lot happening on campus, on any given night there are people playing music in the lounge or people swing dancing and there is always someone cooking in the kitchens. There are also two malls only a couple minutes down the road that have a ton of great stores. The campus also has acres of woods that are wonderful for running or just taking a stroll. If you go the opposite direction there is the ocean only 5 miles from campus.

    For fun i walk through the woods behind campus or engage in activities that CEC puts on, and can't wait to be around for my first golden goose. I also grab a group of friends and head to russels for apple picking or marini farm for the corn maze.
